Leveraged Deferred Compensation Strategy

Who Needs A Leveraged Deferred Compensation Strategy?

Life insurance is a valuable financial planning solution that often requires large premium payments. Cash flow can become an issue. Many people find themselves asset rich, but cash poor. Their assets are illiquid. If that is your issue when considering the purchase of life insurance, it will more than likely be an issue for your family or business if you were to die prematurely – unless you have taken the steps necessary to implement a solid financial plan like a deferred compensation plan.

What Does The Leveraged Deferred Compensation Do?

The Leveraged Deferred Compensation Strategy (LDCS) utilizes an Indexed Universal Life (IUL) contract offered by a top tier insurance company domiciled in the United States. In addition to a permanent death benefit, this strategy leverages loans from the policy’s cash value to provide tax-free income in retirement.
